Sheila Kohler is on tour to promote the paperback reprints of Crossways and The Perfect Place.
A wholly entrancing narrative. . . . Kohler has a fine ear for truth and untruth and the musical possibilities of their interplay.
-J.M. Coetzee, Nobel Prize-winning author of Disgrace
At a hotel in Switzerland, a mysterious and elegant woman is recovering from an unspecified illness. One day, a man approaches her on the terrace. You were a friend of Daisy Summers, he says. With that simple statement begins the unraveling of a decades-old mystery and a journey into a mind as fascinatingly intelligent and amoral as readers have seen since Patricia Highsmith unleashed The Talented Mr. Ripley.
Other Press is proud to reissue Sheila Kohler's stunning debut novel. In the fifteen years since first publication of The Perfect Place, Kohler has staked her own terrain in a series of unique and seductive novels and short stories that have been internationally acclaimed.
Once in a while a novel appears which stands out. . . . The Perfect Place is such a book. . . . Convincing as case history, and an engrossing entertainment.
-Sunday Times (U.K.)
Magnificent . . . totally gripping through Kohler's subtle and poetic mastery of style and form. Unforgettable. -D.M. Thomas, author of The White Hotel
